… All 2018 Sightings

June 2018

A Whooper Swan on the Main Lake was unseasonal. A pair of Common Scoters was at Skelton Lake on 6th. A Spoonbill was on the ridge and furrow area at times from 27th. After missing out on Sanderling in May singles were at Astley Lake on 6th and very briefly on the Main Lake on 12th. Up to nine Black-tailed Godwits were seen fairly regularly. A Turnstone on 10th, Woodcock on 11th and four Avocets on 16th were the other notable waders. Marsh Harrier were seen passing through on a couple of days, with Hobby on eight days and Peregrine on five days. Yellow-legged Gulls were at St. Aidan’s on 1st and 4th with a Mediterranean Gull over the Lagoon on 25th and a Kittiwake in the same area on 6th. The Black Tern remained throughout at Astley Lake with a second briefly on 25th only. The Ring-necked Parakeet was around Astley Lake on 8th and 19th. Two Ravens were over Methley Bridge on 1st. A party of 11 Crossbills flew east along the river near Caroline Bridge on 28th. The Starling roost built up with a couple of thousand in the reedbeds late in the month.
